Abstract

Over the last few months, I have been working on updating my C++ course materials with topics from C++ 20, as well as drafting chapters for a book on modern C++ for finance.  In this presentation, I thought I would share some of what I've learned about C++ 20.  The emphasis will be on a broad range of highlights such as modules, mathematical constants, ranges, views, concepts, and the new date class, along with a few examples of practical applications.

Speaker Bio

Daniel Hanson is a full-time lecturer in the Computational Finance & Risk Management program within the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington. His appointment followed over 25 years of experience in private sector quantitative development in finance and data science.

Adding Modules to C in 10 Lines of Code

Abstract

I know what you’re thinking. You don’t believe me. After all, it took C++ only 20 years to design and implement modules. I must be nuts. They must be coming to take me away. [1] But hear me out. Even if you don’t agree, it’s an interesting story. And I know you want modules in your C work, as #include is an abomination in modern languages. #include is as primitive as a VHS copy of 2001: A Space Odyssey. This module method can work with your favorite C compiler, too!

Oh, and wait till you see what importing modules from other languages does to C!

Abstract

Rust is a general purpose, safety oriented programming language. I’ve been using Rust professionally for roughly 2 years now and I would like to share some of the strengths and weaknesses that I have found during that time.

While this won’t be a formal introduction to Rust, anyone with a software background will be able to follow along. In several places I will compare and contrast Rust with C & C++. The presentation will give you a good background as to when you should consider Rust for a project as well as highlight several of the pitfalls I have run into when working with Rust.
